automation in a new dimension

FBC – A Constant Watch on Your Mould

The FBC (Futronic Blow machine Control system) is a motion control system which combines the control and the synchronous drive for rotary blowing machines with up to 32 moulding sections. The technology for this control system is based on the Siemens SIMOTION platform.

This novel automation concept covers the complete requirements profile from the feeder through the glass moulding equipment to the conveyor for the finished product. The desire to provide a control and drive that are not only suited for latest-generation machines was a top development priority. On the contrary, the concept is equally ideal for retrofitting or modernising older lines. Once again, a futronic control solution meets customer demands for increased production reliability, product quality and productivity. Just as you’d expect from futronic!


The most important features at a glance:

  • Control and drive integrated in a motion control system for up to 128 servo drives per machine
  • Fast communication between the machine control and the individual moulding sections in real time to ensure repeatability
  • Transmission to the moulding sections via Industrial Ethernet using a contactless slip ring
  • Event output visualised on a PC by means of a 360° bar chart
  • Job database
  • Current job matched online and uploaded to the job database again afterwards
  • Trend recording function with long-term archival of measured values
  • Special service tool for individual units
  • Remote maintenance and updates possible via a VPN connection
  • Highest energy efficiency due to possibility of regenerative power feedback from the IGBTs of the drive system
